While science is closing in on a better understanding of our brain connections in dreaming, they have leaped forward in communicating with “lucid dreamers“. Yup. That’s what I said. Communicate with someone while dreaming. Lucid dreaming, the idea depicted in the film Inception, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, is regarded as a “hybrid state of waking consciousness and sleep“. It is suggested that decisions can be made during this type of sleep, but not so with planning. That uses a different part of the brain, and is very detailed which requires one to be awake.
